Witness the sights and sounds of an electric collegiate environment as the University of Florida Gators face the University of Tennessee Volunteers. All 360° of it. The prototype for virtual reality in swimming coverage.

Virtual reality is an innovative technology that has taken hold of the imaginations of many in the past year. We see it in various big company marketing tactics, or even in your living room with capabilities from a Playstation 4. What’s unfortunate, is that the swimming world has yet to adopt this incredible technology. So we did.

Our very first prototype of a 360° Swimming experience. The collegiate dual meet matchup of UF vs Tennessee in the O’Connell center. Experience the races from the stands, above the pool, and even next to the blocks as Caeleb Dressel takes his mark.
